Father Emil Kapaun is back home in Kansas.
His remains arrived Saturday morning at Eisenhower National Airport, after traveling from Honolulu.
A small motorcade transferred Father Kapaun’s remains to his hometown of Pilsen.
A public vigil will take place Tuesday with his funeral scheduled for Wednesday at Hartman Arena.
He will be laid to rest in a tomb at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Wichita.
Father Kapaun died as a prisoner of war in 1951, but his remains weren't identified until earlier this year. He is a candidate for sainthood.
